*putting the ex-DBA hat on*: I can just as easily speak about "sysadmins 
and the DBA's who hate them", or "sysadmins and network geeks who hate 
them". The root of the problem is specialization and narrow knowledge of 
certain people (sysadmins, dbas, neteng, etc) - to be a good DBA you need 
to know a bit of sysadmin, and vice versa. Unfortunately, it is hard 
enough to find person who has enough clue to do *his* job. That's why 
people who have wide experience are so much more valued. :)

It's a BSD conference, so why talk about postgresql? I mean, I can't 
really think of many things in postgresql that are bsd-specific...
